Melodi Parker, MEd, LPC, NCC, Counselor in Desoto
Feelings of despair and insecurity can alter our perception of daily living. If you are seeking comfort and hope from within, I am available to assist you in achieving happiness and satisfaction. As a therapist, I enjoy helping others gain insight and awareness through spiritual counseling. I also provide a safe environment to explore your feelings, beliefs, and behaviors. Together you and I will establish and achieve therapeutic goals. My counseling approach is Adlerian Therapy, which focuses on understanding the unique and inner beliefs to increase self-awareness; as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which works to change your irrational thoughts.
I specialize in working with children and adolescents dealing with divorce and grief. I also work with individuals suffering from depression, grief, anger, anxiety and provide parental consultation; I also volunteer for Trauma Support Services of North Texas. My credentials include being a National Certified Counselor, School Counselor and Teacher with over five years experience.
Additional experience include being certified in Parents as Teachers, providing comprehensive family support services and development of Family Partnership Agreement in collaboration with Head Start/Early Head Start Centers. Also, I have assisted in the implementation of psycho-educational groups at Laureate Psychiatric Hospital and Clinic. Contact me today to setup your appointment.

Melodi Parker's Groups

All About Me

Beauty comes in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Minority youth are pre-judged as being socially unacceptable, uneducated, and inadequate. In order for these group members to become successful, it is very important that the strategies taught be implemented to fulfill everyone members needs. This group would concentrate on positive self-identity, self-awareness/esteem, appropriate behavior and academic success. The members will learn that they are somebody; they count and make a difference in society - regardless of their color, race or gender. Another main objective for the group is to develop positive self-awareness/esteem within their culture and society.
